    Imagine if nerdy Clark Kent didn't have to remove his glasses and pocket protector to save the world. more...
  • Black Nativity (PG)

    I think it was when Nas wandered on set for his second guest verse, toward the middle of Black Nativity, and summarily rhymed "the holy one above me" with "Obi-wan Kenobi" -- during, I might add, a dream sequence in which a Christ is born to a homeless couple in modern-day Times Square while a white-afroed Mary J. Blige belts out a gospel-style carol around them -- that I began to wonder whether this was a parody. more...
  • Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 (PG)

    In the first Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs film, which turned a 32-page children's book into an unexpected critical darling, young inventor Flint (Bill Hader) concocted a gizmo that turns water into whatever foodstuffs he wants. more...

  • Here Comes the Boom (PG)

    Here Comes the Boom confronts the crisis in our nation's public schools, and multiplexes, for even an affable, saccharine, rudimentary comedy that looks like top of the class today. more...

  • Hotel Transylvania (PG)

    Speaking in a Transylvanian accent with a touch of Borscht Belt, this latest Count Dracula has sworn off human blood, desires nothing more than a spot hidden away from ever-ready-to-mob villagers, and his baby-voiced, Weekend Update croon ID's no less than Adam Sandler as the Voice Of. more...
  • McFarland, USA (PG)

    This America's-changing sports and race drama is well made, well acted, and sometimes beautiful. more...

  • Paddington (PG)

    While never quite resembling the quiet hug of the books it's based on, Paul King's Paddington is far from the noisome Penguins of Madagascar experience. more...
  • Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters (PG)

    Before it descends into Percy Jackson and the Things That Happen in Movies Like This, this myth-raiding kids' adventure at times clicks into the inventive groove of Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson novels, which at their best are touched with the high strangeness of the ancient tales that inspire them. more...
  • Planes (PG)

    You can guess the plot of Disney's Planes-- it's just Cars 2 with wings, an international romp that pits a humble country bumpkin against a fleet of literally jet-setting competitors in a race around the world, with pit stops in four continents and more cultural stereotypes than the Eurovision song contest. more...
